4.0 out of 5 stars How to Succeed in the Playground, December 28, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Playground Problem (Robin Hill School) (Paperback)
This is a story of a girl who is excluded from the boy's soccer team. She forms her own team of girls who, surprise, surprise, are better than the boys. Next page, the boys want to play with them. My 5-year old grandsons enjoyed hearing this book read to them, because they both wanted to learn how to make friends at kindergarten recess. But they only wanted to hear it once.

It didn't really help them learn how to make friends when they were new to the school. Liked the message to include everyone in the game, but the underlying theme is so 1970's--girls can only get in the game if they are better than boys. Is that still true? Hmmm

And for those who say "lighten up, it's just a children's book," a book, especially a child's book, can be extremely influential. And a powerful antidote to video games.
